Derek Fisher Talks Lamar Odom

by Darnell Mayberry Published: April 27, 2012

Derek Fisher tried to reach out to Lamar Odom during his time of need. "Several times," Fisher said. But with Odom inexplicably struggling all season to adapt following a trade from the Lakers to the Mavs, there seemed to be little anyone could do or say to help Odom before it was too late. The Mavs severed ties with Odom on April 9. Dallas placed the 13-year veteran on the inactive list for the remainder of the season rather than releasing. But the two sides have officially gone their separate ways. With Odom no longer with Dallas, Fisher's last correspondence with his former Lakers teammate took on a slightly different tone. "I sent him a message actually last night and told him how much fun it was going to be to play against these guys," Fisher said Friday on the eve of the Thunder's opening-round rematch of the Western Conference Finals. Dallas, of course, ousted Odom, Fisher and the Lakers in a clean sweep in the second round of last year's playoffs. It's an experience Fisher clearly hasn't forgotten. The 16-year veteran didn't say what Odom's response was in Thursday's communication. But Fisher admitted that the Mavs no longer having Odom is an advantage for the Thunder. "Having played with him, yeah, it's definitely much better for us that he's not there," Fisher said. -DM-
